German cellist Carsten Jaspert is the latest to join the ranks of exceptional musicians that have arranged, edited, and composed music for Ovation Press, bringing two works to the cello ensemble: Moszkowski's Guitarre and Strauss' Pizzicato Polka.
Ovation Press editor Hans Erik Deckert has arranged thefourcanonsfromThe Art of Fugue for cello duo. These canons are among Bach's longest and most complex, developing aspects of fugal composition which are difficult to sustain in canon.
With the last month having been focused on the violin and the work of composer Helmut Lipsky, we're excited to shift the focus back to you cellists this week with a great transcription by editor Valter Dešpalj. In the past, Mr. Dešpalj has delivered some very creative arrangements that bring the cello together with guitar. Jacques Offenbach's Musette is the latest to feature this pairing.
